At the age of 48, the untimely death of Whitney Houston in 2012, shocked us all. Fans have been clamoring for new music and content from her estate ever since. There have been documentaries: “Can I Be Me” in 2017 and “Whitney” in 2018, which revealed more salacious details about her life and death. However, new music projects have been scarce.
The latest announcement for the estate from Pat Houston, Whitney’s manager for the last 20 years of her life, confirmed a hologram tour for Mexico and Europe slated for 2020.
While some fans are looking forward to the seeing Whitney by any means necessary, others were appalled. Some fans weren’t ready nor here for it.
Pat Houston told the New York Times that the tour was meant to reintroduce Houston’s music, instead of the documented turmoil in her personal life. Before she passed, there was so much negativity around the name; it wasn’t about the music anymore,” Pat Houston told the New York Times in May. “People had forgotten how great she was. They let all the personal things about her life outweigh why they fell in love with her in the first place.”
